Chicago Matters: Growing Forward


Who Are Chicago's Top Ten Visionaries?

Chicago is increasingly a vital link in the global community. But our success in the world depends on the people who live here. Who among us has a vision of Chicago's future over the next 10, 20… even 100 years?

Chicago Matters is looking for the new visionaries who are putting Chicago on the global map.

There is no doubt that Chicago and the region are part of a global community. The future of our government, economy, culture, built and natural environments will be determined by our connections to the rest of the globe. But our success in the world depends on the people who live here. So who's leading the way? Who are the unsung visionaries in your community who are helping to create Chicago's future and putting us on the global map?

Tell us who you think fits the bill. The nomination process closes January 14.

Over the next year, Chicago Matters: Growing Forward will introduce you to Chicago's top 10 global visionaries. Your choice could be one of them!
